about 6 years ago, I bought my first Tarmac roll-aboard. This year i decided that it needed replacement. Under Eagle's No Matter What warranty, I was able get it replaced with a new one.
It's great! strong zippers all around. A couple extra clips and straps that weren't part of my old one. Redesigned internals to give a little better space control. All in all, a great bag. I expect that this lasts through my next 500K miles with no issues.
If there's a small downside, it is actually just a little smaller than my original bag. I think it's in the depth, not sure. But when I fill it with my normal travel things for the week, I have to work to get them all in.

BTW, I pack heavy. Here's a typical list for a 4 day trip. Toiletry bag (12"x6"x5"), 4 pairs of slacks, 4 dress shirts/sweaters, 2 sports jackets, 5 underwear, 7 t-shirts, 2pr Dress shoes, 1pr running shoes, 2 belts, gym outfit,

Try that in a normal roll-aboard.

I looked everywhere for something that would hold similar volumes. Didn't find anything that seriously competed. I travel 100% of the time, so carrying the right bag is critical to my mindset. I'll stay with Eagle Creek.

The wheels on my bag disintegrated. Eagle Creek's website has some replacement parts and nice videos for how to replace wheels on most models. Unfortunately, the wheels for this model were not listed. It took several go-rounds with their customer service to find the right wheels. This concluded when I sent the wrong ones back and included the disintegrated wheels. They sent the proper ones afterwards. See photo. The head guy was apologetic and claimed he had never heard about the wheels needing to be replaced on their products. See Photo.

Good news: It took ten minutes to replace them, thanks to the video posted on their website for a similar product. My much less expensive REI bag, the one with more miles and a much lower price tag, served me well during these events.

Bad news: Cost $ and took a long time to get the right wheels. Their website still doesn't list correct replacement part.

Love the Tarmac - the wheels are amazing!

Comments about Eagle Creek Tarmac Carry-On Suitcase:

I've had an Eagle Creek carry-on bag for more than 20 years, and really loved it. Recently,I bought one of the larger Tarmac models for a longer trip, and loved it so much I decided to get the Carry-On model as well to replace my 20-year old one. The larger wheels are amazing, and work really well over cobblestone streets. I really appreciate the Coat Keeper, it's so nice to have that feature built-in to the bag instead of trying to rig up something. I love the bag, and love the company. Great customer service and quality!!

Comments about Eagle Creek Tarmac Carry-On Suitcase:

I purchased this product based upon various reviews. I highly recommend the Tarmac Carry-on. Its construction is first rate and appearance is very modern. Having just returned from a cross country trip on Amtrak and return flight on United, I still highly recommend this product. It may be more expemsive that other bags, but you will get your money back.

Comments about Eagle Creek Tarmac Carry-On Suitcase:

This piece is what we have been looking for to replace our tired old carry on. The slate blue color is amazing. The Tarmac carry on has lots of space. We love how well built it is. Cannot wait to use for our next trip.

Great features and good quality materials. However, my zipper is a little hard to move in certain spots. Hoping it will get better. Still like the features of the bag very much.

Worked perfected on first trip - plan to use for domestic air travel 10-12 times a year. After first trip I have a lot of confidence it will hold up for several years and am reassured by the excellent warranty. No complaints.

We'll built, but not nearly as good as my old Tarmac 22 that is 16 years old for overall storage.

Resistant zippers give this 3 stars...

By Kimberly

from undisclosed

Verified Buyer

Comments about Eagle Creek Tarmac Carry-On Suitcase:

I haven't actually been able to travel with the suitcase yet - so I'm only rating it based on testing it out at home. I'm giving it 3 stars for now because the zippers definitely feel very sticky and resistant. I hope they will move more easily with time. Other than the zippers, the bag seems very nice...

    Comments about Eagle Creek Tarmac Carry-On Suitcase:

    I want to state that I am reviewing the newest version of this bag. I have to make a disclaimer that I have not used this bag for airline travel. I measured my bag, and it should meet domestic US airline carry-on requirements provided the expansion zipper is not used or the bag is excessively stuffed.

    I have used my bag for a few short car trips. I can easily fit a few days of clothes inside my carry-on without having to use the expansion zipper. The interior pockets provide enough organization, but the pockets do not restrict how one packs if they do not want to use them. The materials used throughout the bag appear to be very durable. All of the exterior zippers are puncture resistant. The telescoping handle operates smoothly and feels very sturdy. The wheels roll easily. The suitcase is very lightweight. I am beyond pleased with this purchase.
